MARKS AND SPENCER
Marks and Spencer (M&S) is a famous1 shop. It comes from the year of 1884. Michael Marks, a Polish immigrant, and Thomas Spencer from England, are the founders2 of the shop.
M&S shops sell shoes and clothes for men, women and children,including3 elegant clothes for the elderly. You can buy cheap everyday4 clothes in the shop, but also expensive suits5 or dresses6.
Big M&S shops also sell products for your living room and kitchen, so you can even buy pots7 there. Some M&S shops also have British food: cakes, marmalades, biscuits8, but also sausages and meat.
There are 1,000 M&S shops in the world, in forty different countries. In Prague, there are ten M&S shops, for example in Wenceslas Square.
